Traffic circles & crosswalks

A Swiss crosswalk

One of the things that has irritated me quite a bit about crosswalks in Eugene has been their placement relative to intersections. If a driver is supposed to yield to pedestrians, then crosswalk should be extended away from a traffic circle, so that a stopping or yielding vehicle that stops for a pedestrian also does not at the same time I impede traffic in the traffic circle. The crosswalk in the image shown allows for a full bus length between the crosswalk and the traffic circle.
